    ​CHABOT MARLINS MEET #3 RECAP

    Our first tri meet is in the books! Rather than score it as 2 separate dual meets, it was scored as one tri meet. The final score was San Leandro: 1278; Seals: 940; Chabot: 783. Here are some meet highlights:

    • High point scorers for the meet were Elma Sabanovic & Corinne Arakawa
    • Swimmers who dropped times in 3 out of 3 individual events: Karissa Chu, Ava Corell (almost 3 seconds off her 25 free), Ethan Dinh (5 seconds off his 50 back), Colton Downing (3 seconds off his 100 IM & 2 seconds off his 50 free), James Fitzgerald (3 seconds off his 100 IM), Zachary Gilbert (2 seconds off his 100 IM), Zoey Halverson (almost 8 seconds off her 100 IM), Sally Jewell (almost 4 seconds off her 50 back), Phoebe Kelly (3 seconds off her 25 fly), Malachi Matangelo (2 seconds off his 50 back), Eliana Miller (6 seconds off her 50 fly), Isabelle Nicole (6 seconds off her 50 back), Jessica Sage
    • Swimmers who dropped times in 2 out of 2 individual events: Liam Mopia (5 seconds off his 50 back, 4 seconds off his 50 free with his new flip turn), Jordan Morgheim (3 seconds off his 25 fly), Edvin Sabanovic (4 seconds off his 50 fly), James Sargent, Sophie Smith, Gabe Soubra
    • Notable swims: Arvin Abdic: 6 seconds off his 25 back, Claire Brochu: almost 3 seconds off her 25 free, Maddison Cutler: almost 3 seconds off her 50 fly, Noah Halverson: 4 ½ seconds off his 25 free, Amelia Johnson: 2 seconds off her 50 fly, Caleb Junginger: almost 5 seconds off his 25 fly, Grace Junginger: 5 seconds off her 100 IM, Griffin Kelly: 10 seconds off his 25 fly, Catie Kenny: almost 4 seconds off her 25 free, Ella Koch: almost 3 seconds off her 50 back, Christina Labang: almost 3 seconds off her 50 breast, Sammy Metcalf: 3 seconds off his 25 breast, Josh Mitchell: 9 seconds off his 50 fly, Miles Moler: 5 seconds off his 25 free, Austin Mooney: 14 seconds off his 25 fly, Colby Vik: 9 seconds off his 100 IM, Lilly Williams: almost 3 seconds off her 50 breast
    • Eliana Miller tore it up in heat 1 of the 50 free, shaving almost 4 seconds off her time and placing 3rd overall
    • Ian Willits would have dropped time in all 3 events were it not for having NO FLAGS in his lane for the 100 IM. He therefore ran into the wall, hit his face, broke his goggles, and still finished only 2 tenths shy of his best time.
    • Speaking of goggles: Many Marlins had issues with their goggles this meet. Blocks at this pool as well as Chabot College (Champs!) are higher than ours and have more of an angle. Swimmers should tighten up their goggles, consider wearing them UNDER their caps, and tuck their chins tighter during the dive. As some learned the hard way, pulling off/adjusting your goggles during a race is almost always a stroke violation which gets you disqualified. Several Marlins kept swimming with goggles around their necks. One swimmer in particular, Hannah Miller, endured 2 laps of butterfly with her goggles around her mouth. Struggling to breathe, she did not break her stroke and was able to finish without disqualifying. Talk about determination!

    See you all at our home pool this weekend. Go, go Chabot!!
